Recently I was sewing a troll doll from a pattern I found online, and as I was working on it I noticed it was starting to look a bit like Tundra (bassist of Finntroll). So I decided to model it after him. It has real Tibetan goat hair, a doll’s denim jacket with the sleeves torn off (and a Finntroll backpatch!), pierced ears and nose, braids of yarn, and my favorite part: a “talking teddy” voice box with 10 seconds of recordable sound- of course he sings Finntroll!
and best of all: I FINALLY got to see them live in San Antonio (12-03-13) after waiting over 5 years. I met them and they were pretty impressed, especially Tundra. Definitely one of my finer moments :D
after vreth and skrymer point to him, he just nods like, “yeah i done it. and i’d do it again, too.”

The character designer and aesthetics fiend in me really appreciate that their ears don’t all look the same.
